BENGALURU, SEPTEMBER 03: The CBI raided 19 locations across the country on September 2nd (Thursday). The reason behind the raid was based on a complaint against a private coaching institute. The complaint alleged that the coaching institute was charging substantial amounts from students for solving their JEE Main question paper through remote access from a specific examination centre in Sonepat (Haryana).
It is expected that NTA will release a notification in response to the CBI raids; however, no notice has been issued from NTA yet. The matter is under CBI investigation and will have to wait for a conclusive CBI report on the issue to decide whether NTA cancels the session 4 exams or not. If the JEE Main August session exams are cancelled, NTA will have to postpone the JEE Advanced dates.
A PTI report stated that after filing the case on September 1st, CBI waited for the examinations to end on Thursday before launching the searches. The CBI teams raided 19 locations in Bangalore, Delhi and NCR, Jamshedpur, Pune, and Indore.
According to the report, the CBI spokesperson said, “The searches led to recovery of 7 PCs, 25 laptops, around 30 post-dated cheques along with voluminous incriminating documents/devices, including Professional Degree Certificate’s mark sheet of various students.”
The case against a private institute and its three directors had led to the agency’s action. As per the PTI report, It was alleged that the directors, with different associates, were manipulating the online JEE Mains 2021 exams. The CBI spokesperson also added that they assisted aspiring students in getting admission into top NITs in consideration of huge amounts by solving the applicant’s question paper through remote access from a specific examination centre in Sonepat (Haryana).
The PTI report had also said that the accused used to obtain aspiring students’ mark sheets of classes 10 and 12, user IDs, passwords, and post-dated cheques as security. Once the admission was made, they collected large fees ranging from Rs 12-15 lakh per candidate across the country.
